Can someone give me step by step instructions on how to copy Netflix or any DVDs and what software do I need? Thanks.

Among them, DVD Ripper serves as the best and most professional Netflix DVD Ripper which lets you rip Netflix DVDs to your computer, iPod, iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, PlayBook, Nook Color, or whatever formats/devices you want.
